LIBERATOR 250 GRINDER THE GRINDING PRINCIPLE PPC’s industrial grinding machines are designed for precision, control and safe operation. The grinding process is provided by diamond tungsten or resin bonded plates which are secured to singular or multiple heads and rotate in a circular motion. The heads are fully enclosed for safety and a dust extraction port provides ‘dust free’ operation. The more technically advanced models allow for the heads to be raised or lowered by hydraulic control. There are numerous plates from which to select the correct combination for smoothing, preparing, polishing or cleaning applications. Liberator 250 Grinder

THE LIBERATOR 250 GRINDER AND EDGER The Liberator 250 Grinder is the work horse of the range with fast stock removal and is simple to use and robust. The machine also features detachable sides to allow the diamond disc to operate directly against any vertical surface, making ease of edgework.


PPC’s Grinding machines are built for high performance and can be used for wet and dry applications.

The exceptional balance of this machine makes it simpler to use than comparative equipment leading to less operator fatigue and increased production rates.

To suit the Terrco grinding & polishing machines, we supply a range of diamond discs and polishing pads: Metal bonded discs – for heavy grinding – range of bonds from hard to soft and from 6 to 300 grit. Resin bonded discs – for light grinding and polishing - range of bonds from hard to soft and from 50 to 6,000 grit. Polycrystalline diamond discs (PCD’s) – for removal of adhesives and all other soft, thick materials.

To suit most makes of grinding machines on the market, we supply a variety of shoes for grinding, polishing and stripping a wide range of surfaces: Metal bonded discs – for heavy grinding – range of bonds from hard to soft and from 6 to 300 grit. Resin bonded discs – for light grinding and polishing - range of bonds from hard to soft and from 50 to 6,000 grit. Polycrystalline diamond discs (PCD’s) – for removal of adhesives and all other soft, thick materials.

GUIDE TO SELECTING DISCS ‘The selection of the correct accessory will optimise the life of the diamond disc and provide cost effective solutions for your designated project.’

The Preparation Group’s Technical Support Team is available to advise and recommend the correct combination of accessories for your specific project. Our diamond products are made from the finest quality materials to guarantee optimum life and performance.


The materials used in the construction of floors and walls vary considerably. The geographical location of the project will provide an insight into regional materials used and must always be considered when selecting diamond accessories to prepare surfaces. The customer must be confident that both the correct grade of bond and the degree of diamond segment on the accessory selected, will meet the precise criteria of the designated project. A simple equation is to examine the type of surface being treated. A hard composition surface will require a soft bond segment and a soft composition surface will require a hard bond segment. In each instance the selection of the correct accessory will optimise the life of the diamond disc and provide the most cost effective solution. In the event that the incorrect grade of diamond disc is selected, the disc will simply glaze over the surface and not create the correct cutting actions, or will ‘wear out’ extremely quickly. This will often be evident in the initial stages of the operation and will prove to be costly and unsuccessful.

PPC215 SHOTBLASTER THE SHOTBLASTING PRINCIPLE For all enclosed shotblasting equipment the principle remains the same, steel abrasive (shot) is propelled at high velocity onto the designated surface to create an infinite range of profiles. The level of profile is determined by the speed at which the machine is operated and the grade of steel abrasive selected.


PPC 215 SHOTBLASTERS The PPC 215 models are designed for maximum usage and reliability. They are of a compact simple construction with no switches, buttons or complicated drive systems. A lever on the handle starts the motor for easy walk-behind operation. The PPC 215’s are the smallest abrasive machines in the range. There are two machines available 110v and 415v The 110v has a production rate of up to 15m2 per hr, the more powerful 415v can achieve 80m2 per hr. Both have an optimised separation system and a variable speed drive motor for maximum efficiency, producing a high blast performance on small to medium areas.

GUIDE TO STEEL ABRASIVE (Shot) Steel Abrasive ‘shot’ is the medium used in all enclosed principle shotblasting equipment to create the designated surface profile. 330 Grade 0.85 – 1.2mm Provides a very fine profile and can be used to lightly texture power floated concrete, steel or asphalt surfaces. Ideal for general cleaning


390 Grade 1.0 – 1.4mm Is more aggressive than 330 grade and is more commonly used to clean and texture surfaces prior to applying coatings and sealants. 460 Grade 1.2 – 1.7mm Is the most popular grade available. Selected for its cleaning properties for use on concrete, asphalt and tiled surfaces, providing a light-medium profile ideal for applications of self levelling systems and screeds. 460 grade cleans and textures coated surfaces; it is ideal for preparing bridge decks and roads for surface dressings and waterproof systems. 550 Grade 1.4 – 2.0mm Is ideal for similar applications to 460 grade , but is slightly more aggressive and rougher in profile. Check the suitability of your machine before using this material. 660 Grade 1.8 – 2.4mm Is used for very aggressive applications i.e. to expose aggregate and reveal surface defects and cracks, to remove existing surface treatments and to provide a coarse profile. Ideal for texturing Terrazzo, Granolithic and existing Epoxy finishes (i.e. extremely dense compound finishes). Check the suitability of your machine before using this material. Combinations of abrasive can be selected to provide the desired surface profile on the designated surface. 27

Vac in use

LIBERATOR 200 PLANER THE PLANING PRINCIPLE The planing operation is based on a drum rotating at high speed enclosed in the main body of the unit. The profile/texture is created by the accessories fitted to the drum commonly known as ‘flails’. Once contact is made with the surface being treated the flail configuration cuts with a downward rotary action. The flails are of different shapes and sizes and have different properties for specific tasks, they can be arranged on the drum for light cleaning through to heavy duty grooving applications.

For multi-stripping operations a sharpened blade or pick (a range of types and sizes are available) is selected, suitable for the surface to be removed, which is then attached to the front of the machine. The weight of the machine holds the blade or pick hard onto the floor to affect the removal process PPC’s multi-stripping machines provide a quick and efficient solution for removing ceramic tiles, vinyls, carpets and old flooring systems, along with their underlying adhesives and levelling compounds. There are hand operated machines and large ride-on models.

M450 DRY / WET VACUUM The M450 Dry/Wet Vacuum is the most robust dust extractor on the market. Dual purpose, the M450 stops dust entering the atmosphere by removing debris from inside the preparation equipment, yet it is an equally effective wet vac for removal of liquids. The filter is cleaned by an external shaker handle.

M450 Dry / Wet Vacuum

The M450 has a 60 litre dust bin and 3 motors with a total power of 3.5kW.

FEATURES • Robust steel construction • Powerful motor • Quick release debris bin • Swivel castors for manoeuvrability APPLICATIONS For use with a wide range of surface preparation equipment including planers, grinders and shotblasters . 75dB(A)
